As promised, here's a peek of my latest project.
I played around with dozens of ideas and finally settled on a simple 2 colour hexagon that's got a sort of retro feel and I think will look great with the Cath K bedding I love. I was going to do basic trebles but tried out tr and dtr clusters and think they look prettier.
The pattern is in one of my favourite books, worth getting if you want some inspiration (also called "Crocheted Throws and Wraps") I've added an extra round of 3tr, 1ch (2ch in the corners) as I'm going to join them on the back and think it will be neater with less chain round the edge.
The colours are mostly ones from my stash apart from the green. I didn't have anything like that minty shade but found some Adriafil Regina in light green (40) that fits the bill.
the other colours are:
Rowan Pure Wool DK; Frost (44) and Geranium (47)
Debbie Bliss Rialto; Buttermilk (31) and Baby Pink (42)
Artesano Superwash Merino DK; Baby Pink (43)
Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK; Alabaster (03)
The hardest part was leaving out all the other colours I love. I usually don't have a plan and just keep adding more shades, but picking out the colours in a favourite blanket, picture or piece of china is a fun way of doing it too!
Should keep me busy for a while :)
